VISAKHAPATNAM: After winning 250 national and international awards in photography, including the 2009 Master Federation International Art Photography (MFIAP) of France and National Photography Award-2013 by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, Anil Risal Singh, president of Federation of Indian photography, would represent India at the world photography conference that would be held in Seoul from August 22-28.

Speaking to Express, Anil Singh said: “Everything in the world is either ordinary or beautiful, but it is  one’s visualisation that would make ordinary things also look beautiful. Things transform when seen through lens.” He was in the city to encourage the little minds of Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan on the occasion of the World Photography Day.

“Since everything has become instant in this digital era, more than the photo itself, it is the man behind it who strives hard to give a meaning to the picture,” said the lensman who has been clicking photographs for the past 40 years.

Remembering his motivators -Benu Sen and Jaikrishan Agarwal, he feels that motivating the present ‘smart’ generation is important to help them move ahead in life.

The award winning photographer was indeed plesantly surprised to look at the themes and the quality of the photos takenby young students in the school. On his past and present, the professional photographer added, “Photography has been in my blood and it was a passion that I had acquired from my father. It has become an obsession and now my journey is progressing towards form and colour from black and white landscape photography or in simple words, towards shades and shapes of shots.” “One life is not sufficient and my best is yet to come,” said the lensman who has received several international honours.
